This week I'm sharing a last snippet of my short paranormal story, Riddick.


My niggling suspicions ballooned, explaining the unease I’d experienced earlier. “No!”

“Yes!” The adamant contradiction slapped at my beliefs, sweeping them away, like ice in a heat-wave, and settled somewhere deep in my heart. “When you arrived, we watched and waited. We had to make sure, you see.”

I looked beyond the tow-haired, emerald-eyed god standing in my palm. “No I don’t see anything at all.” I apologised. “Who are you?” Apparently, he had the advantage. He knew me, but I knew nothing of him or his identity.

“I am Riddick. King of the Faeries.”

Love that he's standing in her palm and is the king! Great sample.

Okay, I'd be frantically trying to wake up about now.

I'd say it doesn't get any better than him being a king... after I pinch myself to make sure I'm awake :) Great sample.

I wonder what he wants from her? I guess she has her suspicions. Nice!

Sandra said...

Somehow, having a "King" in your palm sounds intriguing, to say the least. What if she suddenly clapped? Yikes! Nice excerpt!

Great word painting.

Jenna said...

Great scene in just a few sentences. What was it they say about "small packages?" Sounds like a great story!

I love that he's so arrogant despite his...um...size. Emerald-eyed god? He might be a little overwhelming if he ever gets human sized. :)
Thanks for dropping by my site today!

Jenna, when I read the Six Sentence Sunday offerings I am constantly awed by the power of so much in so few. There's some awesome writers out there. Thank you for your kind words.
